Marie Alet Pletjes was born in 1583 in Kempen, Heinsberg, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany. Alet passed abt. 30 July 1618 in Ballycase, Clare, Ireland. [1][2]

Alet (Marie) Pletjes from Kempen, Prussia married John Jasper. A marriage documented in The Pennsylvania Chronicles, USA by reference to a Dutch Reformed Church certificate August 28, 1643, Austin Friars, London. Originally penned by the Six-Mile Bridge, Clare Minister, Rev. Andrew Chaplin, who led the Six-Mile Bridge congregation before the Irish Rebellion. Rev. Chaplin also lists John Jasper of Ballycase living at Six-Mile Bridge, Clare with wife Marie. And pens Sir John's daughter Margaret is lawfully married according to rites of the Church of England to Nicasius Van der Shure. Marie Pletjes is buried at Ballycastle, Connaught, Ireland. [3]

Note on place name: Johnston's Map in the Book of Survey and Distribution re: Drumline set Ballycase / Ballycasey within Ballycasey More (large) and Ballycasey Beg (small), whereas, other maps for the same period set it under Ballycassee and Ballicassee. All accurately named for the period. In the Book of Survey and Distribution it also records the occupiers of land 1641+ (after Margaret fled to England) without any named Jasper's or Van der Schuren's present or holding title to Ballicase, Tullyvaragh and Ballycase Townlands. It also sets AP acreage (arable and pasture) of each as Ballicase 197a; Tullyvaragh 125a; and Ballycase 103a.

  2. I believe her death place would be the Ireland location...her daughter left for England from Ireland in the 1649s and was in Ireland before that...pre merge message from profile manager Erik Granstrom 23 June 2018.

Note her birth date is before the marriage date of her parents.
posted by Michael Stafford
Hi, I think this would be an estimated date of birth.

But seems like a more likely estimate would be 1584 as her parents were wed Dec. 1584.

Her siblings birth years are listed as 1585, 1586, 1588, 1589.
